Title: Automatic Samba/cifs shares (re)mount

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Fabio Albieri (chareos)



As in 11.2 any user/admin defined samba/cifs share in /etc/fstab stay offline
upon a system suspend/hibernation.

I think this is an important feature to have: an user/admin who ever cares to
define share mounts in fstab is very willing to have them online as the system
is on.


So, for 11.3 I'd strongly suggest:

- make sure any samba/cifs share in fstab gets cleanly umounted before a system
shutdown/restart/suspend/hibernation (Of course, before the network goes down)

- make sure any such share gets automatically remounted after system is back
from suspend/hibernation. I'd suggest max 3 minutes attempt. If final outcome
is a failure in remounting such shares, then notify user, offering a button
in-notification to reconnect shares (after he solved the probable network
